    Re: [HOWTO] Fix for Stuck Volume/Multimedia Keys

    i tried method 2, and when I typed make, I got these warnings and errors:

    evdev.c:696: warning: ignoring return value of ‘write’, declared with attribute warn_unused_result
    evdev.c: In function ‘EvdevInit’:
    evdev.c:989: warning: passing argument 2 of ‘XIRegisterPropertyHandler’ from incompatible pointer type
    evdev.c:989: error: too few arguments to function ‘XIRegisterPropertyHandler’
    make[2]: *** [evdev.lo] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/buddha/Desktop/xserver-xorg-input-evdev-2.0.99+git20080912/src'
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/buddha/Desktop/xserver-xorg-input-evdev-2.0.99+git20080912'
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    I have no idea what I could be. I tried the sudo apt-get build-dep xserver-xorg-input-evdev but I still got the same warnings and errors. ./autogen.sh worked fine.

    I even tried running make without the pasted code, still got the same errors.

    EDIT: I'm running Jaunty

    Re: [HOWTO] Fix for Stuck Volume/Multimedia Keys

    I got the same error as you meditatingfrog.

    If you follow the steps in the fix, the link to the evdev source is to the intrepid version. If you use the jaunty source all is well !

    http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/ja...rg-input-evdev

    jrf2027 mentions using the jaunty source earlier in the thread, thanks !

    Re: [HOWTO] Fix for Stuck Volume/Multimedia Keys

    Thanks for the heads up noOneSpecial. I downloaded a copy and was going to go through the work again, but decided instead to remap my keys and wait for the next version of Ubuntu to come out. I'm sure in time it will get fixed, and I think it might be better to work on something else, like my website, blog and writing.

    Glad you got it working.

    Updated with Jaunty fixes and a new version for people with certain Toshiba models with a touchy volume wheel. Toshiba version is going to be obsoleted shortly by a newer fix anyways.

    Just revisited this "project", and this time compiling worked.

    Thank you.

    @ktemkin You have no idea how long I've been looking for a fix for this VERY annoying problem. Thank you! Method 2 worked on my Fujitsu Amilo Xi3650.

    Re: [HOWTO] Fix for Stuck Volume/Multimedia Keys

    That's a really good fix from ktemkin. Thanks a lot dude, now I can use the fn+volume keys on my Fujitsu Siemens Pi 2550 Laptop!!!!
    But, since Karmic Koala is getting released soon, I need to know: how can this solution be applied to Karmic Koala?

    Edit: I used the evdev 2.1.1 driver for Jaunty on Karmic and it worked just fine!!!
    Also, I tried to use the 2.2.5 which is Karmic's evdev driver but I couldn't find autogen.sh in the downloaded tar.gz.
    Strange... Shouldn't the package contain autogen.sh?
    Would the autogen.sh from 2.1.1 work for 2.2.5?
